Sie­te ap­pas­sio­na­ti di ar­te? Ber­ga­mo è la me­ta idea­le per im­mer­ger­vi nel­la cul­tu­ra. Do­po aver vi­si­ta­to al­cu­ni dei mu­sei in Cit­tà Al­ta (il Mu­seo Ar­cheo­lo­gi­co, la Ca­sa Na­ta­le Do­ni­zet­ti, il Mu­seo Sto­ri­co dell’età Ve­ne­ta, il Mu­seo e Te­so­ro del­la Cat­te­dra­le o il Mu­seo Do­ni­zet­tia­no) non per­de­te­vi la zo­na del­le gal­le­rie d’ar­te in Cit­tà Bas­sa, rag­giun­gi­bi­le con una pia­ce­vo­le pas­seg­gia­ta.

Par­ten­do da Piaz­za Vec­chia im­boc­ca­te via Gom­bi­to e, do­po po­chi pas­si, gi­ra­te a si­ni­stra in Via San Lo­ren­zo. Al­la fi­ne del­la via con­ti­nua­te a scen­de­re se­guen­do le mu­ra fi­no a Sant’ago­sti­no.

Qui fer­ma­te­vi ad am­mi­ra­re il chio­stro, la chie­sa e la splen­di­da vi­sta dal par­co cen­te; poi ol­tre­pas­sa­te la por­ta omo­ni­ma e pro­se­gui­te per via Pi­gno­lo. Al­la Fon­ta­na del Del­fi­no gi­ra­te a si­ni­stra per Via San To­ma­so. Ave­te rag­giun­to il cuo­re pul­san­te del­le gal­le­rie d’ar­te di Ber­ga­mo, do­ve po­te­te con­tem­pla­re ve­tri­ne ric­che di og­get­ti an­ti­chi, di de­si­gn, qua­dri e mol­to al­tro… ve­ri pez­zi d’ar­te. Sa­re­te li­be­ri di am­mi­ra­re in­no­va­ti­ve espo­si­zio­ni e per­fi­no ac­qui­sta­re un ri­cor­do in­so­li­to.

Se ar­ri­ve­re­te in fon­do a que­sta stra­da non man­che­ran­no al­tre sor­pre­se. Tro­ve­re­te ad ac­co­glier­vi l’ac­ca­de­mia Car­ra­ra, uni­co mu­seo ita­lia­no com­po­sto da la­sci­ti di im­por­tan­ti col­le­zio­ni­sti pri­va­ti che rac­co­glie ge­ne­ri pit­to­ri­ci del Sei, Set­te e Ot­to­cen­to e una si­gni­fi­ca­ti­va rac­col­ta di di­se­gni, stam­pe e pre­zio­si nu­clei di ar­ti de­co­ra­ti­ve, dai ven­ta­gli al­le por­cel­la­ne, dai bron­zet­ti al­le me­da­glie. Di fron­te c’è la Gamec- Galleria d’ar­te Mo­der­na e Con­tem­po­ra­nea che con la sua col­le­zio­ne per­ma­nen­te e le sue mo­stre è un luo­go im­per­di­bi­le per gli ap­pas­sio­na­ti.
